A Wisconsin woman allegedly licked the door handle of a grocery store freezer in an attempt to "protest" against the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The unidentified woman was said to have made the unsanitary gesture at a Festival Foods store in Marshfield, Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon as the store manager was disinfecting the freezer door handles, according to a police report obtained by Newsweek.
"While sanitizing handles in the freezer section store manager Marty reported looking over at a woman who proceeded to look at him and lick the door handle of a freezer door," the report stated. The manager immediately cleaned the handle that had been licked before contacting police, who later confronted the woman.
"Contact was made with a 53-year-old Marshfield woman who stated she licked the door handle in protest of the Caronavirus [sic]," the report continues. "The female states she has not used this method of protest at any other locations and was told her behavior was uncalled for." Although the manager initially did not want to take any legal action against the woman, a no trespassing order was later requested after she "became confrontational with the store manager and law enforcement."
